To consider: amendment u/s 419 of WBM Act, 1993 of West Bengal Municipal Building Rules, 2007

In this connection the Chairman reported in the meeting that many Municipalities had already amended West Bengal Municipal Building Rules, 2007 form for convenience of Rate payers. In few cases the rule is too stiff for the people so that they can not get sanction of their Building Plan obeying West Bengal Municipal Building Rules, 2007. Naturally, unauthorized constructions are increasing gradually day by day. Then he proposed the following amendment in the West Bengal Municipal Building Rule 2007 for this Municipality with effect from 1st November 2011.
